This year Silver Envelope is very proud and excited to be working with My Halal Kitchen on a new collaboration on some simple, fun and easy products for Islamic Holidays and Halal “Foodies”. We hope this collaboration will continue to grow and we can help create useful tools for the kitchen and for celebration.
Our first collaborative project is our Sweet Dawah Cupcake and Cookie Kits. Raana Smith (Silver Envelope) and Yvonne Maffei (My Halal Kitchen) really felt like we needed something that could be a cute and simple way to reach out to your neighbors and friends, educate people more about Islam, while also adding a fun touch for our own celebrations. Our Sweet Dawah Kits aim to do that. Cupcakes and Cookies not included.
Have you ever wanted to reach out to friends and co-workers during Ramadan with a little gift that wasn’t overwhelming and helped explain what Ramadan is all about? Us too!
Partnering with My Halal Kitchen, we have come up with a few really fun cupcake and cookie kits as part of our Sweet Dawah Collection. This cupcake kit also helps explain Ramadan with a fun and informational gift tag. A perfect little something to educate and celebrate. Cupcake not included.
- Minimal assembly required
- 12 cello bags
- 18 feet white satin ribbon
- 12-3 x 3 inch cards
- Yvonne’s recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes with Creamy Chocolate Frosting
The informational gift tag contains the following text:
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims observe a fast from food and drink and participate in pious activities such as charitable giving and peace-making. It is the time of intense spiritual renewal for those who observe it. At the end, Muslims throughout the world observe a joyous three-day celebration called Eid al-Fitr (the Festival of Fast-Breaking).
Eid al-Fitr falls on the first day of Shawwal, the month following Ramadan in the Islamic lunar calendar. It is a time to give charity to those in need and celebrate with family and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy.
On the day of Eid, Muslims gather early in the morning in outdoor locations or mosques to perform the Eid prayer which consists of a sermon followed by a short congregational prayer.
After the Eid prayer, Muslims usually scatter to visit various family and friends, give gifts (especially to children), and make phone calls to distant relatives to give well-wishes for the holiday. These activities traditionally continue for three days.
Mubarak is the Arabic word used to congratulate or wish happiness. Muslims around the world (both Arabic speakers and non-Arabic speakers) use the phrase “Eid Mubarak” to wish each other well on this blessed holiday.
FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS, EID MUBARAK!
